New Masters Cycling Record? 63 Years Old and Busted For Doping!!

Now we all know master's racers are competitive. But 63 years old, and even with doping only finishing 5th. Or at least, refusal to pee in the cup. Same diff. I'm guessing its a record - oldest doper ever. Wow, that guy really takes this sport seriously. Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike - what were you thinking? As you can see from the table below from USA cycling, unspectacular results overall, but I expect he was building for next year - who isn't? Well I guess he can dope like crazy now and in 2014, look out! Unless he dies before then of course. But Mike no matter how you cut it, you won't beat Dave Viney (a Canadian by the way).

I think Dave's been working out....

I always get a kick out of these stories, being a more mature racer myself. By the way, those old Floridians (and transplanted Canadians) are fast! Check out the times for 40 km (up to age 64) by clicking on the first link in the table below.
